Highlights And Core Values Of The Assembly
Ebenezer Brethren Assembly History
Evangelist K I Shajimon graduated from the Brethren Bible Institute (BBI) in Pathanamthitta, Kerala, India, with a Bachelors Degree in Theology (B. Th.). He came to Bangalore and started mission work and an assembly gathering at his house in Koramangala in the first week of July 1998. He was forced to move to a smaller house and continue the gathering there. The site of the present Assembly Hall was then identified. The Hall was built there only in multiple phases as the work was hindered in between by the lack of funds. With the help of heavenly provisions, the Hall was completed and the church started gathering there in the year 2001. In the course of this time, several souls and families were saved from non-Christian backgrounds. Around hundred believers have been in the Assembly at one point of time or the other and have moved out to different places. At present, around 80 believers partake from the Lord's table every week including about 15 families at their young age.
The Assembly And Missionary Work
Ebenezer Brethren Assembly follows the New Testament Pattern of the local churches being the missionary organization. Ever since the church was planted, it soon started mission work in other places under the leadership of Evangelist K. I Shajimon. Several souls including families have been saved in different places. A new Assembly gathering has been started in June 2008 in Begur village with around 15 converts to take part from the Lord's table. New believers in Indira Nagar are requesting to start an Assembly gathering. Pioneer work is going on in several other places. Few more unreached places have been identified to start pioneering missionary work in due course.
Needs of The Church For Prayer And Support
Places are not available on rent in the city for new church gatherings. Neither can the church afford the rentals or to purchase land and construct Assembly Halls. New believers in Indira Nagar are requesting to start an Assembly gathering, but the absence of a meeting place is hindering this. The church in Begur gathers in a very small room in a house that can cease to be available any time. Several places that have been identified to start pioneering missionary work need missionaries to stay there and take the lead. The Assembly Hall in Madiwala needs a few rooms on the first floor. Few believers who have bikes and cars park in private property whose availability can be withdrawn any time; please pray to the Lord for provisions. The church in Begur urgently needs a native Kannada evangelist to work there and also shepherd the new believers.

About The Brethren Assembly Movement In General
Origin: The Brethren Assemblies or the Plymouth Brethren are a conservative non-denominational Evangelical Christian restoration movement that is generally considered to have been started in Dublin, Ireland in the late 1820s. It may be noted that the Brethren do not have a single origin as similar movements existed in Europe at the time of its start in Dublin, and new such movements continue to be started in several places across the world without lineage from existing Assemblies.
Purpose: The purpose of the movement was to reform the church from complex ritualism, denominationalism, clericalism and bring it back to the New Testament and Biblical Patterns of faith and practice.
Uniqueness: The movement emphasised New Testament patterns of simplicity in gathering, priesthood and ministry of all believers, weekly observance of the Lord's Table, no special church buildings, participatory meetings, spontaneous worship meetings with no set order, missions and ministry in faith, missions by the church rather than by mission boards, plurality of leadership with no single pastor, and so on. The local churches all function independently and are not part of any denominational body, organization or convention that supervises them, hence they do no consider themselves a denomination.
Name: From then on, local churches that strictly adheres to New Testament Pattern for the church are called Brethren Assemblies or Plymouth Brethren churches even if they may not call themselves or are not known by that name. Since the believers practice equality, Christian brotherhood, and love for each other, they are often called by others as the 'Brethren'.
